Any further color on:
(1) when the LMPD switchover to Hytera (DMR) will occur?;
(2) any possibility that LMPD will simulcast their transmissions on EDACs or some other listenable broadcast while they use DMR?;
(3) when with the County's new P25 system be up-and-running and in use by LMPD?; and
(4) anyone know of any scanner that can monitor a Hytera system?
Appreciate any further information.
Not in your area but I found it typical when a agency switches systems They simulcast to both systems until a full switch is made and all its users and or surrounding areas have means to interop with them. Once they get everyone on same page they cut the simulcasting to old systems. Some leave it there as fall back or just have new fall back conv channels. if they have other agencies who literally relie on there main dispatch for interop purposes they may till it fails or becomes illogical with costs and maintenance continue a primary channel simulcast to a obsolete system. Seen It With A Old Edacs where I once lived. But I'd plan on them inevitably cutting any dual system simulcasting once a new ones in place.
